Dokang 0.4.2

Lightweight search engine with a web frontend

Package Documentation

Latest Version: 0.9.5

Dokang is a lightweight search engine with a web frontend.

Status: Dokang is fully functional and works for us but has a few limitations:

  • the indexing and search features are minimal. They work but could certainly be tweaked to be faster, provide better results or, who knows, both;
  • the two-file configuration is a bit unfortunate. The INI file is useful for WSGI servers but defining structured options is much easier in Python;
  • more generally, the configuration may be a bit discouraging. Suggestions and contributions are welcome.

Change log

Dokang 0.4.2 (2014-09-01)

  • Fix bad-looking (but working) URLs generated in the web front-end. They used to contain two consecutive slashes (for example when the configuration of the project had a slash at the end of its URL.

Dokang 0.4.1 (2014-08-27)

  • Fixed so that the Python package contains all templates and stylesheets required by the web front-end.

Dokang 0.4.0 (2014-07-04)

  • A new dokang.hit_limit option has been added to the INI configuration file. It limits the number of results shown on the web front-end (or lift this limit if the option is absent).

Dokang 0.3.0 (2014-07-04)

  • Fixed bug in the HTML harvester. Trying to use it would fail with an exception because Whoosh would complain about something that unexpectedly is a byte string.
  • Fixed bug in the handling of deleted documents. They were not deleted from the index.

Dokang 0.2.0 (2014-06-24)

Initial version.
